The success of the Next Generation EU recovery plan will be decisive for the future of Europe in many domains: digital, energy policy, sustainable economy as well as fiscal policy. What role will Europe’s recovery play in the current international context of competition/cooperation (G7, G20)? How relevant is the NGEU in a world facing growing socio-economic imbalances and inequalities? To what extent does the recovery plan contribute to the EU’s international identity and leverage the EU’s foreign policy?
